"Gavin has been one of my best friends since middle school who I consider a brother. We've had our share of laughs throughout the years as well as fights but the one thing that never changed is no matter how long it has been since we've seen each other we just pick up right where we left like we just saw each other yesterday. He's one of the best people I know, social, personable, easy going, and loyal through the end. He is the type of friend that will always lend the shirt off his back for you but not without laughing about it first"

I will cherish those moments forever.
Gavin, you are one of the toughest people I know, and have no doubt that you are going to do great on your road to recovery. Fight on brother!"
